Bruce Loshusan

A developer, entrepreneur, gourmet-food distributor and a Director of Progressive Grocers of Jamaica. A graduate of New York University with a B.A. in Classical Literature of Western Civilization (Magna Cum Laude) with a Minor in Business Administration and Photography, he is also a recipient of the NYU Founder’s Day Award for academic excellence. While living in New York, he worked for several years in magazine publishing at Conde Naste’s Details magazine and then later for American Express Publishing’s Travel and Leisure magazine, which he credits to being the most impactful years of his formative, professional and creative life.

Returning to Jamaica in 1997, he assumed the role of Director in his family’s retail, food business and has actively been on the path to revolutionizing and elevating the retail, supermarket experience on the island. In September 2011, after the passing of his father, Kenneth Loshusan, he became Chairman of the Board of Kenneth Loshusan & Sons. His principal retail stores include John R. Wong and Loshusan Supermarket, winner of the Jamaica Observer’s Table Top Award for “Total Shopping Experience” eight times in the last ten years. In 2012, he was an integral part in the development and construction of Sovereign North plaza and in 2014’s development of Sovereign Village in Portmore. Taking his vision internationally in 2014, he formed Loshusan & Company in London, England and opened Amorino UK, a fine, Italian gelato franchise that established the Italian company’s presence in England. Also in 2014, a lover of art and culture, he was asked to be on the Board of Advisors of Miami’s Museum of Art and Design, which is currently housed in Miami’s Freedom Tower.

His current projects include developing a boutique hotel in Eleuthera, Bahamas, slated to open in late summer 2021, and a commercial, mixed-use development in the Barbican district of Kingston, which he believes will be a source of design inspiration and a beacon of hope for future generations of young Jamaicans. His proudest accomplishment to date, however, has been the birth of his twins, Sofia and James, in late 2018.
